The Raindrop Technique is based on the belief of a healing art as developed by the Lokota Indian nation. They use the practice of mentally processing energy, coupled with light stroking to facilitate healing energy throughout the body. Gary discovered that by incorporating essential oils , which are considered by young living to be nature's living energy, individuals could be inspired to lives of wellness, purpose and abundance.
